BREAKING NEWS: i became a neocities supporter, meaning the site domain is now officially "smudgebap.com"!

welcome to smudgebap.com!

my name is riley, i make videos, draw art and livestream from time to time. i made this website because no one else thought to take the name "smudgebap.com" and i wanna use it to store my Stuff and Things.

this site is primarily for blog posts and media reviews, as well as having a place to present my video work and art all neatly instead of it being scattered across different sites. i post new articles maybe once a month, or every other month, or something like that. keep checking back for more if you wanna!

here i am at the 199X microsoft windows expo. i'm not sure how i got here.
